So the domestic season is coming to a close with just the play off finals to go.
Whilst football will take a lull between the Champions League final this weekend and the beginning of the Euros in a couple of weeks time, we are full steam ahead in Kick Off Merchant towers.
Football beer mats are continually being designed, release and dispatched. We thank everyone that has bought so far.
Today we have also released our Tottenham beer mats.
The Spurs mats shows how quickly things can change in our world.
One of our designers spent a day creating a Harry Kane beer mat, only for the announcement to leak that he will leave this summer. We went back to our Spurs focus group to ask if they would still want a Kane mat and the response was “it might be too early”. So we have archived him and will probably add him to the collection once the dust has settled.
Similar happened with West Ham.
A few in the group asked for Declan Rice. But we posed the question “if Rice joins Chelsea this summer would you still want him?” and the answer was “no”.
We are working hard to make designs for players across multiple generations. But we know some will complain that their favourite player has missed out.
We vow that if the original set of beer mats are popular enough, we will begin working on a second set later in the year.
Designing a set of 12 is hard work. It is time consuming. So our aim is to get that first set perfect!
We have more bar apparel in the pipeline as well as some beach towels. Then it might be a time to take a creative breather, a bit of time off and recharge those batteries.
Thanks again to everyone that has supported us so far.
